Founded in 2012, #GivingTuesday is the international day of giving that encourages people to consider all that they are thankful for, then come together in the collaborative spirit of social media and give back to the causes they believe in on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
This year, we once again turn our hearts to the children of Daily Bread Life Children's Home in Iringa, Tanzania. Since its opening in 2006, DBLCH has offered physical and spiritual support to orphans and vulnerable children so that they may grow into the people God created them to be.
Mpeli and Neema Mwaisumbe are Teleios Ministry's primary partners in Tanzania, and "parents" to each of these children. Kids who may have never known even basic safety or food security are given a bed, a regular meal, and a family. In the last two years, the first group of children at DBLCH have begun to graduate from college, get married, and even start their own businesses. We thank God for the blessing of being able to see these children grow and develop into Godly men and women.
Already this year, nearly 20 new children have been brought in, more than any previous year. For each child, the basic cost of moving into DBLCH is $200. This amount includes a medical checkup, clothing and shoes, and a pillow, blanket, and sheets for their bed.
In the coming weeks, we'll be spotlighting some of the children who have benefited from their time at DBLCH. Please join us in our prayer that hearts and minds will be open to helping these children.
